November is American Diabetes Month

////November is American Diabetes Month

Originally created to bring awareness to the rise in diabetes among humans, American Diabetes Month also shines a light on the fact that pets can develop diabetes at any point in their lives. Many pet parents don’t realize diabetes can affect their dog or cat, and often learn too late when they are diagnosed.

It’s important to keep an eye out for certain symptoms. Knowing what to look for is the best way to protect your pet.

  • Increased drinking
  • Excessive urination
  • Weakness, lethargy
  • Poor skin condition, such as excessive dandruff or oily coat
  • Cataracts, blindness

For a limited time, The Alex Lewyt Veterinary Medical Center is offering this special promotion to make sure your pet is healthy and happy for years to come.

During the months of November and December, make an appointment for a diabetes screening and during the exam we will perform a FREE in house blood sugar test.*

If your pet is diagnosed with diabetes, because of our partnership with the Diabetes Petcare Alliance, we will be able to provide a FREE diabetes management kit in the months of November and December for newly diagnosed diabetics only.

The kit includes:
1 Alpha TRAK blood glucose monitor
1 6 lb bag of Purina ProPlan Veterinary Diets DM for cats
1 6 lb bag of Purina ProPlan Veterinary Diets ED Fiber Balance for dogs
1 10ml vial Vetsulin insulin

For more information, or to make an appointment call (516) 883-2000, or email us at [email protected]
